This Girl Can

January 19th, 2015 5:03 pm


Sport England has created a national campaign entitled ‘This Girl Can’, which celebrates active women of all shapes, sizes, abilities and ethnicity. These women are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red and sweaty their faces get.

This inspiring campaign is here to hopefully encourage women to wiggle and jiggle, move, and prove that the fear of judgement is a barrier that can be overcome.

It is refreshing to see an advert that is aimed at women, to encourage them to get active and fit for all the right reasons instead of trying to alter their body image dramatically and dangerously. The video below is inspirational, motivational and representative of every girl that is active up and down the UK. Its aim is not just about weight loss or crazy dieting techniques- as it proves , it’s about sweating it out, exercising without judgement and having fun with it whilst getting strong and fit.

The video was only published on 12 January and it’s already had over 2 million views on YouTube proving just how powerful this message really is.

Any woman can set her own goals and challenge herself whether her thing is Zumba, Netball, Running or Yoga. We believe, as well as This Girl Can that it’s about having fun and maintaining a positive and healthy attitude towards sport and your body image. Nothing should ever be about how to simply achieve a narrow beauty standard that is classed as the norm in today’s society. It finally seems like more people in positions of influence and power are realising this. We fully support this brilliant campaign and can’t wait to see more.




Miniature Golden Globe looks

A New York photographer who recreates Hollywoods red carpet best dressed, using toddlers in miniature outfits has worked her magic on this year’s Golden Globes.

The artist Tricia Messeroux picked the best dressed looks from Sunday evening’s star-studded ceremony and selected an adorable cast of children to don replica outfits and mimic their red carpet poses.

Stars such as George Clooney and this new wife Amal Alamuddin, Kelly Osbourne, Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone were all replicated for the shoot. We can’t get over how adorable each child looks

Tricia has re-created looks from several red carpet events which can be seen on her website http://toddlewood.com/

The lovely Alice Dogruyol was spotted wearing our Ponte & PU Panel Dress in Stella magazine over the weekend. The shoot was a final part of a documented series of three plus size ladies, who for three months tested different weight loss methods. The shoot was the big reveal of their hard work. We think Alice and the other ladies look fabulous. You can get the dress from HERE in our SALE now.
